The Rotary Amphitheater at Woodward Park is under appreciated (if not underused) as a concert venue.
But it will be busy in September.
I already told you about A Day to Remember, which brings its “Parks and Devastation” tour to the amphitheater Sept. 23.
Before that is The Mega Old School Party Jam 2.
The concert, scheduled for Sept. 5, is for fans of early hip-hop with performances from Treach and Kay Gee (of Naughty by Nature) Jalil & Ecstasy (of Whodini), plus Kurtis Blow, Shock G (of Digital Underground), Coolio and Young MC.
Gates open at 5 p.m. and the show starts at 6:30 p.m.
Tickets are $35-$40 and on sale now online at myticketportal.com (thru Sept. 1), or at Rimco in Fresno (5375 N. Blackstone Ave.) or Visalia (1712 E. Main Street), at Ed Dena’s Auto Center, 1500 W. El Monte Way in Dinuba, or the Mega 97.9 studios located at Palm and Shaw in Fresno.
